violence on many shots on many shirts politicians on both sides of the political spectrum slammed the president for not taking a strong enough stance and what's very unfortunate is people in virginia are still fearful that this could happen again given that those organizers of the white supremacist rally have vowed to not give up the hatred and tension was palpable here on saturday and much of it has continued throughout the weekend when one of the organizers of the rights protests tried to speak he was not only booed into submission he was also physically attacked. by. a out of the tragic events that occurred here on saturday is unfortunately just the most recent in a series of violent attacks happening throughout america. many of you will remember a republican senator was shot at a congressional baseball practice not long ago when the tox on the left we saw
a comedian do a photo shoot holding up a bloody severed head that was meant to resemble the president we also saw violent protests and universities in california. we are united in telling these people who do not welcome them here. white america is acting like this brand new this is a brand new this is something that you will start it all instances was it he still had they just came. through that is they live in ok. they would say extreme of these they tried to kill people the politics have never been so divisive as they are right now it's unclear what can be done to bring everyone together but it's clear something needs to be done. r.t. charlottesville virginia political call to go to ted roll told us that extreme beliefs on both sides of the us political divide and part of the mainstream discourse. certainly extreme right nationalism and groups like the national
socialist movement are on the far fringes of american politics and that's also true about the anarchists left as well but they also penetrate deeper into the mainstream than most american political pundits would like to admit and we certainly there are elements of white nationalism in the mentality that leads to for example police shootings by white policeman against young black man and there's elements of the far left within the progressive left and even in terms of that level of militancy so on the one hand this is played this is definitely a far right versus far left story but it's almost like a team sport of politics where people who are perhaps not deeply invested in their own version of the left or the right are nevertheless sort of silently cheering for one or the other. it's about you and i do we stand divided we fall but i've.

world is very very clear and it seems many people have taken the bait google searches in the u.s. for how to survive a nuclear attack are out trending classics like how to get rid shouldn't how to be happy and the media is certainly helping to stir things up people begin weighing their disaster plans a nuclear warhead that could land in hawaii in twenty minutes this is an accidental threat to the united states will information on radiation from a potential nuclear blast so where does that leave us now learning a few days into trump's verbal spot with kim jong un.
alas making a comeback to clients helps people who are really bridge and really freaked out his clientele has changed from people afraid obama would take their property to those of great trouble start a nuclear war all this drama with north korea it's paying off in a big way for this company take a look at what they are selling here these are massive bomb shelters one such companies even advising people to form an entire survival community if nuclear armageddon talk has you scared feel life you could move to one of these bunkers scattered around a whopping twenty square kilometers in south dakota yet another says they're completely sold out are even true did so but we have the capacity to me at least there's a year's supply of me around the world. so plenty of point scoring on the back of needs planning but while the big boss is reaping the rewards the laws communities of people are left losing sleep over the
fear of yet another conflict activist. says trump's rhetoric betrays the lack of genuine u.s. concern for the island. is used by the united states it defends the united states but it's not really the united states if kim jong il and the north koreans were to say that we are going to target off the coast of california or we're going to target off the coast of washington state or even target off the coast of hawaii there would be a very different response from the united states because you are directly threatening the homeland but what is the purpose of a territory or a colony the purpose of a colony is that you are exploited when things are good and if things get ugly you cut it loose the fact that trump speaks so recklessly and sort of impulsively only helps to underscore a lot of those those anxious tensions we're back with more of your monday headlines in just about.
anyone else seems wrong. but. just don't hold. me. to shape out this day as a kid and in the game equals betrayal. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want. to be this is what the three of them or people. interested in the war.
is turning twenty past the hour thanks for joining us here in the e.u. migration commission has called for member states to get tough on illegal immigrants and ensure that they get deported let's get more on this now across life to watch the correspondent emily soon are joining us here on the program and then a year or so ago this sort of rhetoric was hard to imagine coming from any top e.u. official what's exactly being said. what are you exactly right there's certainly been a change of threat track from the e.u. migration commissioner demitra from operatives who one year ago set that that you
should work harder to accept more asylum seekers take a listen to exactly what he said before let me remind you that you're already has the highest asylum standards in the world and we have to uphold those and a commitment to protect those seeking protection we need districts and more effective policy for deportation to few migrants are being deported the european states have to do more. now this change of tone really boils down to the policy for migrants and refugees really you know apparently falling apart with more and more countries refusing to take in more migrants we're talking about hungry we're talking about poland and the baltic states as well and the situation really has reaching a boiling point particularly in italy which has been bearing the brunt of all of the migrants arriving from the middle east as well as africa in search of a better life in europe we're talking about nearly one hundred thousand migrants has arrived in italy since the beginning of this year and in this particular small
town. well locals have been protesting against the building of this new refugee shelter for under eighteen migrants take a listen to why they don't want their photo did we have the police a minute proved a friend of mine and got into a car he was trying to bag we couldn't handle the situation any more i don't blame this i blame the government and in the wood they're doing i'm just here to see that we can't take it any more we don't want them here. we give them a place to sleep and we give them eighty euros a day but first we should be taken care of children our own people. well the mayor of this town says that the town's simply been left alone to handle this crisis alone here. modern europe. the european union we've never seen do anything here i don't think the e.u. has given us any real support the big expense for us comes from underage migrants who the town according to law has to take care of generally we will be reimbursed
around half of the expenses there are tens of thousands of your town is paying because of this now earlier there see it's really even threaten to close down its ports to all of the boats carrying migrants so we have to wait and see how e.u. officials were reacting to the situation and it's also how to restart a modern crisis as a whole. thank you. in the meantime abandoned vessels used by migrants to get across the mediterranean are regularly found like that right there on the italian coast of the boats come in under the cover of darkness that's thought to be in a bid to avoid detection by all the already used professor of modern european history paolo bernadino says officials are simply passing the buck as the situation continues to get worse while. the same is blaming this. and the fact is is now is the law.
oh gracious is a very rapid escalation of the air when an opioid prices altered forty two americans are dying every day of drug overdose and then you have the surge in afghan drug production opium production in afghanistan rose bush forty three percent to four thousand eight hundred metric tons in twenty six seemed compared with twenty fifteen levels afghanistan hasn't always been the booming center of drug production that is today since the united states invaded in two thousand and one the poppy fields and the drug dealers who run them have been getting stronger in fact at this point drug production in afghanistan is twenty five times higher
than before washington got involved whereas all these opium growing how about the united states which is currently suffering from a crisis of opioid addiction well the u.s. drug enforcement agency says that there is no connection southwest asian heroin is by far the most common type of heroin produced in the world however its availability in the u.s. market is very low the u.n. agency begs to differ in different parts of the united states during has been a resurgence in the consumption of heroin and afghanistan is now producing huge quantities we know a great deal of heroin currently comes from mexico but now of ghana stan is looking at the u.s. for the distribution and consumption of its heroin now the u.s. special inspector for afghanistan says that opioids from afghanistan are coming to the u.s. via canada the u.s. department of homeland security currently lists the flow of illicit drugs as the greatest threat on the northern border for the next time you hear u.s. officials decrying the opioid crisis plaguing the nation and you see images like
this. you might also want to keep images like this in mind. artsy new york the managing editor of news site better and today jim dean says the war on terror is simply putting money into the pockets of u.s. intel. and politicians. or we went in afghanistan there was almost no one here when production there and then of course after we went in it miraculously began to skyrocket because the northern warlords went back into growing opium to fund the war and also to enrich themselves later that the u.s. contractors people who were involved in doing a lot of the air flights in and out of the country began shipping drugs later we found out that a lot of the increase in heroin production was being officially done and the money
going in the pockets of eventually ending up in political campaigns in the us and also to fund black projects for intelligence operations that they didn't want anything in congress to know this is about international and it's a busy monday for worldwide news we are back in about an hour. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in the economy is built around
